People enter and leave our lives, things change and the world continues to spin; the sun continues to rise. Every once and again we come across someone who can completely change our lives. One action, one smile, one word, one long kiss goodbye? nearly anything can leave a lasting impression on all things to come.

The decrescendo in every song the barn swallow sang led me to believe even he was intoxicated by the sweet summer stillness. Eyes closed, sun ripening our scraped knees, neither of us noticed the rain cloud tiptoeing overhead. I felt so content lying there on
